If you have a dish box that has not been activated, you need reception from a minimum of one satellite from 129, 119, 110, 72, or 61 to do the activation.so i could put that lnb on one of the big dishes i have and tune in the 77 satellite?
yes. set it up on your big dish and then take it off and install on the small one.yeah i will activate in the states.i have huge 10 ft commercial dish(came from one of the defunked airlines),so it should be no problem with tuning in any satellite.so i could just take the lnb off the dish in the states and bring it down?
What you are describing fits what happens with a marginal signal. Daytime hours - no reception. Middle of the night - reception.i just hooked up a standard def direct tv dvr to my dish down here in southern mexico and the guide loaded and i have all the channels that i am getting with my hdvr.the big difference is that it will load up anytime i unplug it.with hdvr i have to load it up between midnight and 4 or 5 am,it will not load up during any other time.it just stays at 98 %.just wondering why?i guess it has something to do with the software in the hd ird?
